ABOUT

I’m a guitarist in my late 60s that can sing a bit as well. While I still practice and play multiple days a week, I’m past wanting to put together a serious, working band because I no longer want to put in the rehearsal time it takes to play out weekly. Given that, I’m all for playing out maybe once a month or so. I love a lot of kinds of music. I play rock and roll (currently mostly stuff from the 1970s) in a band setting and I play a lot of Americana music (folk, blues, country, etc.) by myself or with other acoustic players. I’ve got a rock drummer and bass player I’ve been playing with for around 20 years. Our lead guitar player has just retired and is moving out of the area so we would like to find a new lead guitar player (and even better if you sing!). Would also love to add a keyboard to the band! We are spread out geographically so we can only play/jam/rehearse together a couple times a month but we do enjoy getting out and playing for others when we can. I also wouldn’t be opposed to putting together an acoustic group to play quieter places like wineries and restaurants. If I can find people local enough I’m happy to play/rehearse/jam once a week.

EQUIPMENT

I have a full set up for a band/rehearsal in my basement including PA, drums, bass and piano besides my guitars. My primary personal equipment consists of Taylor 6 string and Takamine 12 string acoustic guitars and Gibson SG 61 reissue and Heritage 535 electric guitars. When plugged in, I usually play through my Mesa Boogie Nomad or my Fender Mustang GT100 modeling amp. I own a number of other instruments, but these are my primaries.
